11 Days Later

January 20, 2009

Thank you all for the kind words, well wishes, gifts, and overwhelming love. I’m sorry I didn’t “approve” the comments to the last post sooner – I’ve been a little, um, preoccupied! Things are going really well for all of us. We are starting to figure out what works and what doesn’t, and we still manage to laugh the whole time (OK, almost the whole time). We took Alice for her first outing to the Dundee Dell on her 1 week birthday and then to Aunt Suzanne’s house for a pizza party. She seems to like the car seat, but I still need to get used to carrying it and a diaper bag. I feel like a baby deer trying to take my first steps – awkward and unbalanced. Let me clarify that I use unbalanced in the physical sense, not emotional.

Alice makes the funniest noises when falling asleep and waking up. It sounds an awful lot like my sleep apnea supposedly does, so Nick is a little worried that he might not sleep ever again. She makes us laugh with her facial expressions and noises and she’s more animated every day. It’s been amazing 11 days already – truly amazing.

I am writing from Mom and Dad’s house, so I don’t have access to pictures of Alice right now, but I will add some soon. Happy Inauguration Day!
